In addition to the church in Süsel, we visited the Basilica in Altenkrempe where my great grandmother, Emma Bertha Anna Sell, was baptized. Emma was born 14 June 1885 in Blackfoot, Idaho. She and her brother traveled to Germany with their mother, Bertha Friederike Jacobine Sick Sell and lived there for some time before returning to Idaho. My mother remembers being told by her grandmother that she had to re-learn English when they came back to the United States.
